Took the opportunity to take this cruise because of the stops at China and Japan, it was great to get a taster of these countries. Ship has had a full refurbishment since we last cruised on the Millenium and it looks much better although some did not like the color choices we thought they were ok. Cabins are fitted out much better and have a little more room thanks to the shorter couch. The bathroom is better and feels like it has more room and the shower head is much better and you get a much improved flow of water. Interesting that in general areas floor coverings were done but ceilings and edging, doors and some furniture remained the same. We noted the reduction of the gym size and the loss of the library for more more state rooms. The buffet restaurant layout has improved and the food good. We were disappointed with Blu restaurant we felt the quality of the meals had dropped from our last cruse how ever the staff were excellent as always. Staff service in general was excellent and it was great to see the crew just as pleasant and happy as the last cruise. Entertainment was ok as was the ship tours that we did do. The self organised tours we did with the cruise critic forum groups were great, smaller groups and set to the specific interests of the group. We also did a few shore based tours ourselves which were also very good and cost effective. All in all the cruise was very good and what we expected.

Happy crew refurbished ship
